    Evening all,
    My 9 year old Millie has been asking me all week to let her use my camera and lights so that she can have a go at portraiture, so as her little sister was out today we set up the lights and she had a go. She would love to know what you all think as she loves to read the comments that are posted from all over the world. All I know is that it looks like I might as well give her all my gear as she is better than me.

    1. Sorry about the ugly model:lol:

    i think they are great.

    second one could of been a tad better if the whole ear was in shot.

    but very good.

    [ps to the daughter ask dad for a d80 for christmas and see what santa brings]:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    We are too! J/K!!! :mrgreen:

    They look great! Keep working on it.

    Advice though... chin down, face forward a bit (think of a turtle sticking his neck out of his shell). This is a guideline to portraits in general, not necessarily these 2 shots.
